Requesting Parent Volunteers:
January is Mosaic Month at MJS and we need you!
Mosaic Month is a beautiful celebration of the cultural diversity that exists in our community and we rely on our parent volunteers to help make it happen. The culminating event is the International Heritage Fair on Friday, January 29th. If you are interested in either creating a cultural table for the fair or in helping out behind the scenes, please contact Ms. Myvonwynn Hopton firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. Thank you!
